What makes Google Chrome the most used browser in the world?
And, the answer is — speed, security and its huge extensions support are making Chrome the best web browser on the planet.
To give you an idea, “there are more than 15,000 apps on the Chrome Webstore which you can use in order to skyrocket your productivity”.
And, when it comes to blogging, Google Chrome has some really amazing webstore apps which help bloggers save their time and increase productivity.
In this blog post, I will be writing about the Top 5 Most Useful Chrome Apps for the Bloggers. And, there’s a bonus tool at the end too which nobody is currently talking about. Also, check out the 15+ best IFTTT automation recipes to boost productivity.
So, let’s get started…
Top 5 Best Chrome Apps for Bloggers
How do you come up with new ideas for your blog? And, how do you research keywords for your next post?
I asked these questions because this “Keywords Everywhere” chrome app would be completely changing the way you currently research for the new keywords.
Keywords Everywhere is one of the tools that I use on a regular basis. It’s a completely Free Chrome App which can help you a lot in finding some really great keywords for your next blog post.
Just install the Keywords Everywhere app in your Google Chrome browser, setup the API and start using it.
Search for any keyword in the Google, YouTube or Amazon search box and it will tell you the exact number of monthly searches along with some great list of suggested keywords.
As the name suggests, LastPass is a great cross-platform and cross-browser password manager tool which stores all your passwords, personal details and bank details in a secure vault.
LastPass comes for almost all the browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera, etc. and it has an Android and iOS version of the app too which you can install from the Google Play Store and Apple Store respectively.
You just add a password in your Chrome browser and immediately, it will be synced with your Android/iOS apps and other browsers too.
LastPass has an inbuilt password generator which will help you in generating unique and secure passwords for all your online accounts.
Awesome Screenshot is a great tool to take screenshots and capture small videos right into your browser. Not only that, you get options to capture partial or the full webpage at once too.
By using the Chrome app “Awesome Screenshot” you can do some great things like annotating screenshots, blurring sensitive info and sharing images with just a click.
You can even add rectangles, circles, texts, and arrows to your screenshot or on any local image from your computer. After that, you can share on Social Media, send to Google Drive or save directly to your computer.
When it comes to staying organized and not missing anything important, then there comes the Todoist Chrome app. It is one of the easiest ways to create to-do lists without even closing or minimizing your Chrome web browser.
But, this is not just a to-do tool — it has way more functionalities than a simple to-do app.
With the help of the Chrome extension “Todoist”, you can
- Create to-do lists
- Create reminders
- Add tasks
- Save articles to read later
- Save links to review later
And, the most beautiful thing about the app is that it syncs all your information with your Todoist app on any other operating system. And, you can even collaborate with your team on any project in the real-time.
If you are into blogging and do a lot of writings then nothing can beat this tool called Grammarly. It won’t let you commit a single writing mistake.
Whether you are writing a blog post on your WordPress website, typing an email or posting anything on the social media — Grammarly won’t let you be embarrassed about any kind of spelling or grammar mistakes.
Grammarly even has an inbuilt text-editor which you can use to write blog posts, articles or essay and it saves all your data in the cloud which you can access from a different computer or a different browser.
Below are a few features or the Grammarly,
- Corrects spelling error
- Corrects grammatical mistakes
- Has an online text-editor
- AI-powered engine adapts your writing style
- Detects plagiarism (Grammarly premium)
- Offers citation suggestions (Grammarly premium)
6. Instapaper (Bonus Tool)
This Chrome extension “Instapaper” saves any link/webpage you want to read later on your Android, iOS, Mac, PC or even Kindle devices.
Instapaper is my personal favorite tool.
The extension comes in very handy when I’m in the office researching something and came across an awesome article which I want to read later at home.
With its latest update, now, Instapaper also allows you to save Tweets with all the replies for the offline reading.
Instapaper has another feature called Speak which reads your saved articles out loud and that too without the internet connection.
So, that’s it.
